Those pictures were awesome! Looks like you guys had a TON of fun. :) And I did watch that video of Jacob.... SOOOO hilarious!

I even had a fun time looking at the pictures. Looks like you guys really enjoyed yourselves...a little too much. In the end it is what we do with our family that matters.

Great pictures and fun to look at - almost feels like you're there.

I'm so glad you had another awesome year at Powell! The pictures were fun to look at. Maybe we'll have better luck next time. :-)

I love that the whole family got together! Looks like tons of fun- maybe Jake should stick to wakeboarding or things with one ski. lol good video.

It's possible they had an excellent vacations during that trip, because last year I went to that place with my family and it's wonderful.

Connley's High Tech Space Shuttle

Connley and I built a space shuttle for him the other day. He kept sitting inside this box that I was meaning to throw away and decided that he was having so much fun with it that we should color it and make it something cool. So it is his NASA space shuttle, called Space Shuttle Connley. Once completed I had him sit in it and I pushed him around the apartment until I just about fell over dead (like after one minute!). So, that was our fun little project!
